I don't need the virtual machine, nor any of the Erlang
applications (kernel, stdlib, etc). Is it allowed to distribute epmd alone
with my C++ app, or do I need to distribute the whole erts-x.y.z\bin
package as a whole? The EPLICENSE is not really specific on that...

Absolutely no problem to distribute selected parts of the Erlang/OTP distro
as long as you still respect the Eplicense is respected.

The full Erlang/OTP distro is a Development Environment or SDK and the
intention is that the user creates his own product or target system which
includes a selected subset from Erlang/OTP together with his own code and
possibly other 3rd party
Sw components as well.
